    Replay value is very good, as there are plenty of unlockables and mixing up your loadouts can have an impact on how the battles play out. Additionally, enemy placement varies from one effort to the next, so that helps to keep things fresh.

    Featuring a great mixture of dumb luck and strategic gameplay, Dead Man’s Draw is a compelling challenge hampered mainly by its IAP push and its lack of an online multiplayer option.

    Replay value is good, as you'll need to try several strategies before hitting on the optimal solution and earning gold. Also, forked pathways on the level map allow you to bypass some of the 50 available levels if you like, so you'll probably have additional puzzles to go back and solve even after working through the game.
